Event Details

Making it Here: Port Morris Neighborhood Tour

Reservations begin Aug 1 at 10 AM

Please note: This tour is 2.5 hours long


In response to increasing real estate speculation in industrial districts amidst the re-zonings of the mid-2000s, the Bloomberg Administration created sixteen Industrial Business Zones (IBZs) in the four outer boroughs that are preserved for industrial uses. Join Stephane Hyacinthe of SoBRO, the organization that manages all five Bronx IBZs, for a tour of several factories in the historic Port Morris area to learn more about how space for manufacturers is being safeguarded in the South Bronx.

This tour is part of Making it Here. Click here to learn more about the series.

Please note that as this is an active manufacturing space it is required that you wear closed-toed, hard-soled shoes for your safety. This tour is not wheelchair accessible.
